A Microsoft Gold Partner is a company that has been certified by Microsoft to provide specific types of sales and services to end users. Microsoft provides a number of products, services, and solutions for individual as well as business consumption, but making them available directly to the end customer is a kind of difficult task because they have limited resources in comparison to the number of people on the planet.
To provide the best solution to each user, Microsoft has partnered with various organisations to provide the required services on their behalf by following Microsoft’s methodology. With Microsoft’s trust, the vendor can provide the desired solution to the end customer.
The entire process of becoming a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner isn’t easy, as it requires a lot of time, effort, and resources from the organization. To become a partner with Microsoft, companies have to follow a number of processes, industry-proven tests, industry-recognized exams, and certifications to earn a badge or get certified from Microsoft. After passing all tests and certifications, an organisation is designated as a Microsoft certified vendor partner.
Currently, there are only two certifications available in the business application category for organisations based on their performances and services, which are:
- Microsoft Silver Partner
- Microsoft Gold Partner
Types of Certifications: Silver or Gold
Silver and Gold certified partners offer different capabilities and benefits to the end user. The specific partner, whether Gold or Silver, has to demonstrate their expertise in delivering quality solutions in one or more specific categories or solutions. This makes the organisation stand out in the market and offer seamless Microsoft services. Once an organisation becomes a certified partner, they have to provide services as per Microsoft competencies, and attract customers who are looking for a reliable support partner.
Microsoft Silver Partner: This is the first stage of becoming a Microsoft certified vendor partner. Such an organisation offers the following features to end users:
- Possess limited capabilities
- Limited workforce
- Low resources to fulfil a requirement
- Less certification
- Works for a single or few services
- Only works in a specific niche
Microsoft Gold Partner: Once a vendor partner starts to offer more intense features than a Silver partner, Microsoft upgrades the certification to Gold. Below are the features a Microsoft Gold Partner in the UK offers.
- Possess exceptional capabilities
- More resources to fulfil demands
- More certifications
- Good workforce
- Works for many services and products
- Offers services to various industries
